"The Crisis in Anarchist Publishing and Distribution" (CR) Ramsey Kanaan, Kate Khatib, Joe Biel, Microscosm, and Alexander Dwinell These are hardly auspicious times for media, publishing, and the dissemination of words and ideas. Since the rise of the movement -- radical publishers, bookstores, magazines et al in the 60s -- publishing has taken a beating. The growth of the chain-stores and then the rise of the Internet have hardly been kind, long before the current recession sparked a further hemorrhaging of staff, sales, and profitability across the mainstream and Left publishing houses and media institutions, and the closure of numerous stores, infoshops, magazines, and publishers. The panel, chaired by Ramsey Kanaan, will attempt to further illuminate this sad state of affairs, examine whether the wounds are somewhat self-inflicted, and probe the eternal what is to be done?
